Busy Bee!

Dudes, I've been NONSTOP the past few weeks (okay probably more than that, and let's not count my partial laziness this past weekend...). So without further adieu, the much not-requested "what the heck have I been doing?", in pictures and other things.

Watching Chris put up new "wood" blinds (hey, we're on a tight budget here! faux wood blinds FTW!). These babies are cat proof. Does anyone else have cats that tear the crap out of their cheapo vinyl blinds??? Hmm...probably not.

Making the garden grow!

Waking up twice a night and early in the morning to let Sadie McWhinerson out to potty. While we're on the subject of Sadie...if you don't already know, we took her to the vet and found out that she is a MINIATURE Aussie. Apparently we got a 92% discount!!! I always knew I was frugal :) Oh and we're not supposed to be taking her on walks or to the dog park just yet...oops. So that means she has been a little shiiiiiaaat, driving us NUTS. Children will be a breeze when the time comes.

Crafting a little bit :) Shameless plug? Whatev, I need to make a living, yo!

We also installed new lighting fixtures, all by ourselves (Mommy, WOW! I'm a big kid now!!! ...ok that sounded cooler when I sang it in my head)!!! Bye bye 90's glistening gold crap!

Oh also, cutting back my internet purchases. Sucks right?? Dang you ETSY! When you have a good chunk of extra tend to not really budget as well as you should...then it's all gone and you wonder what happened. Yeah, that would be ME!

Sadie McWhinerton... hahaaha I love it!

I am going to have to come over and check out your place... lots has happened and I was just there a couple of weeks ago! (Can't really see things at night so I guess it doesn't count.)

Also, LOVE that you got blinds that aren't plastic. Those kitties have surely learned their lesson. :]

I love everything you've been working on! It's definitely paying off!

Okay, "Busy Bee" automatically makes me think of Best in Show, and I'm really really hoping that was your reference. If so, YOU COMPLETE ME. hahaha

You really have been busy though! Everything looks great!

Haha to Morgan's comment. That movie is THE BEST.

Love the new blinds and light fixtures! How exciting!

As for Sadie McWhinerson, Maisie used to whine at night to go out, so we crate trained her at night and spent two nights letting her whine and not taking her out. Because I needed sleep and half the time she really just wanted to go play outside. Good luck with that though! As adorable and cuddly puppies are, sometimes it's nice when they turn 1 and all of a sudden are much easier to deal with.
